Lost Children

lost_children-header.jpg



The Lost Children Net Label releases EPs and Full Lengths from Instrumental/Experimental/Post-Rockish kind of bands. We're an mp3 online releaser only and provide the music free as we believe that art should be free to the world.

But artists should be paid. We're sick of being reduced to "content." Wealth inequality is growing globally, and it becomes harder and harder for many of us to just get by, to pay rent and feed ourselves. Yet big companies like Apple and Samsung and blank media producers and ISPs continue to rake in the dough. Without our content, Facebook would be nothing, without our content, Google would have no viewers to capitalize on ads sales, without our content, what would you be burning on those CD-Rs? Let's all demand a bigger piece of the pie.

Links to the artist roster are below. Don't hesitate to get in touch.

"Enlightened False Consciousness" is French Teen Idol's second release, following the 2005 self-titled debut album. Melancholic piano patterns, dreamy atmospheres, vocal samples and striking instrumental crescendos, some of the ingredients of French Teen Idol's debut album, are sill there, enriched by the continuous search for new musical solutions, including a more classical "song-structure" approach in some tracks. Athens-based band GardenBox and Roman artist Patrizio...

My artist name is "American Green". It is one of my favorite colours. I started composing music with DAW a few years ago. I played as a drummer in a band before that. This is my first EP. Electric guitar, the keyboard, and other machine parts were used for this EP. I love music such as Post-Rock, Electronica, Ambient, Alternative, Bossa Nova, Emo, Melodic Core, and more. I hope to be making music after this EP that is warmer and more analog. And, I am also producing music by a band...

The Silent Ballet: Volume 6 Fall 2007 As the year begins to draw itself to a close, we’re wondering how it’s possible that time has passed so quickly at The Silent Ballet over the past ten months. It seems like only yesterday when we were all staring wide-eyed at a brand new year with the biggest hopes for things to come. And even though the year is wrapping up, there’s still much new music to discover and fall in love with. Volume VI steps back from the post-rock aesthetic and prepares...

'Adam and Eve' is the third Loss of a Child album and extends upon the subtle math rock, classical structures and epic melodies of the previous two albums. The blending of pianos and strings alongside the heavier guitar, bass and drums provide songs that will grow each time you listen to them, a sound that bring different instruments to the fore in different listening environments, dynamics that improve the sound of the album when played loud, a wall of sound unlike any other. This is an album...

It's with that in mind that we bring the latest in our ever expanding compilation series, unearthing new talent and providing exclusive tracks before they hit the streets. The Summer edition is particularly enticing, containing more unreleased material than we know what to do with. So sit back, pop a cold one, and enjoy the sounds of...

I AM THE ARCHITECT found their place in student-town Muenster (Germany) in autumn 2007. Having a diverse musical background the four members focussed on a certain goal: Finding a unique musical style that relies on Post-Rock, early ninetees Shoegaze and classical music. Out of this mixture occur songs that are able to combine contrasts. Complexe structures meet catchy melodies, a melancholic atmosphere opens the door for brute soundwalls. No song sounds like the other but nevertheless an...

Stray Borders are a Welsh quartet who make "slow-burning, mathematically precise alt-rock experiments that strongly recall the shrill distortion barrages of Sonic Youth". 'Deletive Expleted' is their debut self made and released EP and combines the mathematic elegance of Slint, with the American Alternative Rock of the late 80's and the subtle, melodic flair of the Smashing Pumpkins. Highly Recommended! Organ Art's 'Demo of the Week' Just nice, nice breezy refreshing, clever,...

The best times however are when we have the opportunity to play these songs to appreciative folk at various small and intimate venues across the UK. Someone said this about us...

We’re just as optimistic and excited about the future as we were four years ago, and every new release makes us as giddy as ever. This edition is a first for the series; Volume 16 is the first...

Skyhaze was formed in the middle of 2005 as a means to produce relaxation music for a local Complimentary Therapist (Venus Light Therapies). As the songs debuted on Myspace, interest in the project increased and the decision was made to make Skyhaze a full-time project. Skyhaze consists solely of Steve Cowan (of FearOfHatred and PlaguesFire fame) who is usually found singing and playing guitar in Death and Black Metal projects. The first album to be created was 'Score For An Unwritten Movie' in...

"I won't say that we are lazy, but the new album has been sitting on the shelf for way too long. So here it is, it isn't perfect, some of the mixes are not quite right, the mastering is sub par, but the music is still above par (in our minds). This album has truly been a lot of work on our part. Recorded in 5 cities, mixed in a few more, and our members being in countless number of places throughout the whole ordeal. So it is quite apropos that we decided to entitle the album Sleeping in...

It's been a while, but good things come to those who wait. Hailing from opposite ends of Australia, Perth's Tangled Thoughts of Leaving and Sydney's sleepmakeswaves are proud to present you with a shiny new split LP. It's a record from two bands that are very different yet one that finds an equilibrium between the seemingly disparate tendencies of the two groups. Although both bands find common ground in their latent electronic influences, sleepmakeswaves marry these ideas to their...

Los Angeles based indie-jazz/math-rock (though subtly defiant of both terms)band Charts and Maps have released a 4 song EP, titled "Enemies of C.Frias". Working with engineer/producer Chris Schlarb (whose solo projects and free-jazz duo I Heart Lung are released through Sufjan Steven's Asthmatic Kitty records), the band have managed to further hone their sound while losing none of the adventurous flair of their previous releases. Characterized by unrestrained song structure, a keen...

'Carry Me Home' is the 5th Loss of a Child release and is their most expansive yet, a deeply layered album with flowing and interwoven melodies; contrasting instruments supporting, offsetting, and harmonising with each other and mixed for each to be heard though not necessarily under every listening environment, and certainly not on first listen; experimental through its strict structure and detailed song writing as opposed to the freedom and improvisation of many instrumental acts.

Recorded in the Summer of 2008, 'ERS-3' is the third EP from the French outfit following both previous releases on Lost Children and again contains quality guitar-driven instrumental post-rock whilst expanding upon the formula with the use of keyboards, electronics and the clarinet. 'ERS-3' is a nice progression from the earlier releases whilst remaining resolutely Stellardrive, this time the instruments are given more space to breath and grow, mixing in their trademark driving riffs with...

What does Magnets sound like? Imagine, if you will, Don Caballero and Tortoise having a baby. At age ten, after seeing his parents killed in a tragic trapeze accident, Steve Reich adopted the child as his ward, and secretly trained him to be his partner in crime-fighting. Upon reaching puberty, the young band fell hopelessly in love, and shared it's most precious gift. Though Fugazi was a tender and generous lover, society wasn't ready to accept their love, and the romance was doomed. In...

This Is My Normal State is a post-rock/ambient band from Bristol, South West England. Formed in October 2008, the band has just finished recording its debut EP: Angel Falls ++ (October 2009). Taking influences from bands such as Sigur Rós, Explosions in the Sky, This Will Destroy You, Mono, Mogwai and Joy Wants Eternity to name a few, the band create a sound-scape of interlocking melodies, typified by the use of reverb drenched guitar loops, and fragile, ethereal vocals.

The Silent Ballet: Volume 12 Fall 2008 - Spring 2009 We’ve experienced a bit of a lag time between compilations 9 and 12, as our tri-monthly series has stalled out over the past half of a year. To remedy this situation, volumes 10 through 12 will be released in close proximity to one another. That’s right, three great compilations for the price of, well, nothing! No sacrifice in quality has been made to make this possible. We continue to pull from the best and brightest artists we know to...

'Further Than You Think' is the second album from James Morris under his Final Light guise, following two years on from his Lost Children debut album, 'To Stop an Exploding Man...', displaying increased maturity and depth in both song writing and production. Beautiful piano lines interspersed amongst glitched beats, layered with delicate guitar lines, subtle samples and electronic, synth-like sounds to produce an often haunting, always harmonious and graceful soundscape. A great achievement and...

'Hundred Million Angels' is the fourth release from Loss of a Child, following on from the three albums all previously released on Lost Children. A single track clocking in at just over 20 minutes qualifies 'Hundred Million Angels' as an EP but the lack of repetition and wide breath of ideas ensure that this EP is in no way short-changing anyone, experimental through its strict structure and detailed song writing as opposed to the freedom and improvisation of many instrumental acts.

The record was written towards the end of 2008, and recorded over the winter of 2009. It's something of a summer pop record. Or about as close as we'll ever get to writing a summer pop record anyway. We hope you like it. 'Sparks and Beams' is a beautifully crafted and studied record, full of interweaving guitar and bass lines and intelligent flowing drums, creating a gloriously chiming and melodic post/math-rock EP.

Inspired by the documentary "Venice: Behind the Mask" by Marco Gentile and Ryan Simon, 'Venice' is an attempt to articulate the visual images of Carnival into music. On the surface, Carnival can appear purely driven by entertainment and pleasure. Yet, underneath lie themes of death, rebirth, and social and cultural identity. Northvia explores the darker side of Carnival, hoping to reveal something more behind the mask. Track List: 1. opener 2. mask 3. double 4. canal 5. elegy 6....

Maths is the study of quantity, structure, space, change, and related topics of pattern and form. Rock is a naturally occurring solid aggregate of minerals and/or mineraloids. 'Schematics' is the debut EP from five piece Helsingfors, including all four ex-From The Sky members, and is an instrumental post-math-rock hybrid, a logical progression from their previous work. Upping the complexity and melodic layering mixed with upbeat, jarring indie-rock, 'Schematics' was recorded primarily as a live...

Inertia Blooms are currently in a place between two places. Full of new material, but concentrating on the last year of degrees. We have re recorded some things that have evolved since we first did them. One is a reworking of a track off the Hostages EP, the other was available on the Scrooge compilation that Robot Professor put out a couple of years back. You might recognise both of them as the collective last song we usually play at shows. We’ve also found another track down the back of the...

'Rememberable Rifts', the debut EP from progressive Leeds 3 piece Hoarder Myna, is an immensely tight, crisp sounding debut from another great UK band blurring, and expanding, the definition of Math Rock. Each song flows constantly, moving from one idea to the next, the roving guitar lines intertwine with the melodic bass patterns, underpinned by drums playing stacatto lead flourishes and driving rhythm simultaneously, before all comes together in harmonic unity. It may take many listens to...

It's always easier to form a band when it's not your first. Painting By Numbers has been a recurring project in the head of its architects long before it actually took shape in autumn 2008. Antoine Ollivier (Dawnshape) and Gregory Hoepffner (Radius System, Time To Burn, Template) always felt their belonging groups didn't let them experiment as much as they wanted. Soon joined by bandmate Axel Dallou (Radius System), the trio didn't ask too many questions and quickly started making noise, in a...

Originally created as a sound installation for an art exhibit, 'Parts' is a three-disc set designed to be played on three different cd players at the same time. Each cd player should be set to 'repeat' at the end of each disc. As all of the cds are a different length, they will repeat at different times, and an ever-changing sonic landscape should result.
